Features & benefits

 

Advanced road and highway capabilities help civil engineering professionals working on transportation projects to explore preliminary design options and optimize project performance.

 

Dedicated tools for roads and highways

Dedicated tools for roads and highways

Engineer roadways with tangents, curves, and spirals that are constrained by design criteria. Specialized features include: 

  • Style zones within road sections
  • Fixed-slope grading
  • Fixed-width parametric grading

Rules-driven on/off ramps

Rules-driven on/off ramps

Model interchanges with uninterrupted traffic flows using design standards and configurable rules for turning direction of intersecting roadways. Make manual changes to roadway ramps as desired.

Sight distance analysis

Sight distance analysis

Identify sight distance failure zones, demonstrate desired and actual sight envelopes with informational tooltips. Identify driver sight obstructions and perform lane-by-lane analysis with road sight analytics.
